the OG Kush is a legendary strain with a name that has recognition even outside of the cannabis world. Despite its fame, though, its exact origins remain a mystery. Some claim that it’s a cross between staple Chemdawg and a hardy Hindu Kush landrace. It’s also possible that OG Kush emerged from undocumented bag seed as a distinct phenotype of some other existing strain.
About OG Kush
Vibrant orange pistils, meant to catch pollen from fertilizing male plants, stand out against these colorful flowers.
Smoke from Kush is commonly harsh and cough-inducing; it may sting the sinuses and cause eyes to water. The smoke tastes hashy and spicy like a classic indica on the inhale and exhale.
It starts with a sudden headrush that may lead users to feel more focused on their surroundings; sounds and colors may seem intensified.
Some have reported relief from headaches and migraines with this strain as well. As with many sativa varieties, OG Kush has the potential to make users feel paranoid with higher doses.
Kush seeds can be grown indoors or outdoors. Outdoor cultivation requires consistent temperatures around 75 degrees Fahrenheit. Indoor growing tends to be more convenient for many, as plants are typically short and bushy, growing between 2 and 3.5 feet tall. Topping — trimming the broad fan leaves that grow towards the top of the plant — can help light and air reach flowering nodes on the lower branches.
